Annotation: "Remember your high school and college literature classes. Not really? Too boring? Well, why did literature have to be analyzed so blandly? Professors are clearly intelligent, but sometimes literature needs to be translated, especially classic works, to speak to today's audiences. Enter the one and only Sparky Sweets, PhD. Based on the hit YouTube series, Thug Notes: The Book will celebrate the most widely read (and widely assigned) works of literature, including Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride & Prejudice, Lord of the Flies, A Raisin in the Sun, Fahrenheit 451, Things Fall Apart, Romeo and Juliet, and more. Each title will get the classic Thug Notes treatment: razor-sharp analysis, hilarious summary, and eye-catching illustrations. In his introduction, Dr. Sweets will lay down his philosophy for why these classic works need to be revisited, and how they are relevant still today. Readers of all stripes--adults, students, and educators--will be eager to see their favorite books like neverbefore"--
